  What is Science?
Science is an intellectual activity carried on by humans that is designed to discover information about the natural world in which humans live and to discover the ways in which this information can be organized into meaningful patterns.
Science consists simply of the formulation and testing of hypotheses based on observational evidence; experiments are important where applicable, but their function is merely to simplify observation by imposing controlled conditions.
Science is the most subversive thing that has ever been devised by man. It is a discipline in which the rules of the game require the undermining of that which already exists, in the sense that new knowledge always necessarily crowds out inferior antecedent knowledge.

 The changing identity of the scientist   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Science has become 'big', global and complex (Price, 1971), and the emphasis has shifted from the individual scientist to collaborative work.
Indeed, the object and direction of research in industrial laboratories are dictated by the corporate bodies who fund it and by the terms and expectations of their consumers and shareholders, which are often not in line with the doctrines of objectivity and impartiality of basic research.
Indeed, partisans of the belief that science is independent of society need to accept the view that changes in society and science go hand in hand, and they need to recognize their co-evolution to understand these transformations (Nowotny, 2003).

 Science Quotes
Science is nothing but trained and organized common sense differing from the latter only as a veteran may differ from a raw recruit: and its methods differ from those of common sense only as far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.
Science is facts; just as houses are made of stone, so is science made of facts; but a pile of stones is not a house, and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.
Experimental science is the queen of sciences and the goal of all speculation.

In this he was one of the first ameliorators to argue for reform as an evolutionary necessity.
He argued that disorder was rampant because theistic Roman Catholicism, the spiritual basis of medieval society, was being undermined by the rise of science and secular philosophies.
Instead, he called for the creation of an integrative social science, grounded in biology, to help establish a new "positive" credo for secular man in the emerging social order.

The recent changes in the way that synthetic chemistry is practiced in this environment center around new scientific advances in synthetic techniques and new technologies for rational drug design, combinatorial chemistry, automated synthesis, and compound purification and identification.
Although combinatorial techniques have found application in materials science, catalysis, and molecular recognition, the greatest influence of these techniques has been on drug discovery.

 Henri de Saint-Simon
This priestly task was actually taken up by two of his followers -- Barthelemy-Prosper Enfantin (1796-1864) and Saint-Amand Bazard (1791-1832) -- who infected the whole movement with their bizarre mysticism and ritual.
Saint-Simon was crucial for the development of the social sciences: his call for a "science of society" on the same footing as the natural sciences, was highly influential on his disciple Auguste Comte and the sociologists and was the primary cause of the scientific pretensions of economics.
One could count Thomas Carlyle, Michel Chevalier, John Stuart Mill and the young Léon Walras as adherents of Saint-Simonism.
